 From the VL70-m manual:

The VL70-m voices are organized into four main banks. Additional 
banks are used when the VL70-m is set to operatie in the VL-XG sound 
module mode. The four main banks are as follows:

PRESET 1  The PRESET 1 bank contains 128 present voices which have 
benn created primarily to be played via a keyboard.

PRESET 2  The PRESET 2 bank contains 128 presetn voices which have 
been creted to provide maximum expressive capability when played with 
a breath controller or WX-series Wind MIDI Controller.

CUSTOM  The CUSTOM bank has 6 memory locations in which voices can be 
edited in detail via an appropriate personal computer and the Ymaha 
VL70-m Expert Editor application software...

INTERNAL  The INTERNAL bank has 64 memory locations in which voices 
you have edited can be sotred and easy [sic] recalled for use as 

Banks 112 through 119 become available when the VL70-m is set to the 
VL-XG sound module mode. In the VL-XG sound module mode some voices 
from the PRESET 1 and PRESET 2 banks are assigned MIDI bank and 
program change numbers conforming to the Yamaha XG format. Since the 
VL70-m does not have a full set of XG-compatible voices, however, 
some voice numbers will be skipped (e.g. 23, 24, 27, etc.).
